DC-FIT™ for site renovation, operators can avoid disruptions in service and quickly migrate to RRH architectures by leveraging existing base station hardware. The DC-FIT™ converter is designed to connect a DC cable with an existing coaxial cable run. It features innovative technology that turns an existing coaxial foam dielectric feeder into a RRH power supply. As a result, upgrading a conventional coax site to RRU technology is a breeze, compared to the time-consuming installation of a new DC cable run.
One of the key components of the RFS portfolio of RRU solutions is DC-FITTM, the world's first Direct Current (DC) converter. Another is RFS' fiber optic (F/O) set for site renovation, which enables reuse of existing RF feeders as ducts for optical fibers. These solutions dramatically simplify upgrades of existing wireless cell sites. They make it easier for operators to migrate to base station architectures that take advantage of RRU configurations and fiber optic technologies.Typically, upgrading or replacing old-style base stations with the latest base station architecture requires operators to dismantle cell sites to install new optical fibers, DC power cabling and equipment. This is time consuming and, in many cases, not acceptable because operators cannot generate revenue from a site that is off-air.
These innovative solutions are available for coaxial cables with a 7/8", 1-1/4" or 1-5/8" nominal diameter and DC-FITTM is already in use around the world.
